MSD does not (for some unknown reason) make the standard cap in black, the cap listed above in black is for HEI wires. I go with a black cap from PerTronix, model D600700 from SummitRacing.com. They are standard issue GM distributor caps.

If you don't care about it being black, I have the 8442 rotor/cap kit (deep maroon colored cap), new in the sealed plastic which I will sell for $25 including shipping if in the US. I like the black cap to match my black wires:

I've had much better luck with the Summit brand cap and rotor than I ever had with the MSD brand (the center button hasn't fallen out like it always did on every MSD cap I ever ran). Summit Racing SUM-G5234 - Summit Racing® Distributor Cap and Rotor Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com
